Glory Gardens 8 - The Glory Ashes




Great reads for all cricket fans - you'll be stumped without them

No one takes much notice of Ohbert Bennett when he creates a Glory Gardens web site, but Ohbert has a mission -to make Glory Gardens the most famous junior club in the world. He sends out a challenge to all junior sides to beat 'the reigning world champions'. The first the other players know about it is when the top young Australian club side, Woolagong C.C., arrive in England to take up the challenge. A five-game series -dubbed the Junior Ashes -is set up around the country and with the press and public following the action the pressure is certainly on. With the series tied two -two, the final game at Trent Bridge attracts huge crowds and the
big question on everyone's Iips is -will the Glory Gardens XI win Ohbert's Ashes?
